THE KILLING OF JOHN F OXER.
The Inquest-The Slayers Arrested and
Lodged In Jail.
On last Saturday, October 8th, Mr.
John F. Oxner, of Maybinton, was shot
and instantly killed by William Murphy,
a negro who had been working for Mr.
Oxner during the year.
Mr. Oxner and Murphy had had sone
misunderstanding. Murphy had been in
dicted by Mr. Oxner before Trial Justice
Dickert for violation of contract. and last
Thursday was appointed for the trial, but
Mr. Oxner did not appear and the case was
dismissed. On Saturday Murphy got a
wagon and went to move from Mr. Oxner's.
He seems to have armed himself well, as he
had a new pistol and a shot gun. He was
accompanied by Judge Glenn, Jr. He was
not molested while at Mr. Oxner's. After
going about half a mile from Mr. Oxner's
he and Glenn stopped their wagon and
began shooting at a mark, for what pur
pose they do not explain. Mr. Oxner,
hearing the shooting. got on his mule and
took his gun and rode down to see what
it meant, and was shot. The only living
witnesses as to what took place there are
Judge Glenn, Jr., whose testimony was
taken by the Coroner, and is published
herewith, and William Murphy, who did
the shooting. The Coroner beld an in
guest Saturday night, and we give in this
,onnection the testimony taken by him.
tHE TESTIMONY BEFORE THE CORONER.
Judge Glenn, Jr., sworn says he saw
T. F. Oxner killed between his house and
Maybinton. William Murphy killed him
with a doubled barreled shot-gun belong
ing to Ike Glenn. Judge's people told
bim Will Murphy got Ike's gun to go
hunting. Deponent went with him to Mr.
Dxner's. Said he hoped Mr. Oxner would
aot bother him. Mr. Orner came up and
sked who shot the pistol. Will replied,
"me." Mr. Oxner asked Will if he did
aot tell him he would shoot him. Will
said, "No you d'd not tell me so." Oxner
said "you lie, you heard me say so, and I
nean to get you and old man Reighly to
lay." I said to Mr. Oxner, go back home
md let him alone he is nothing but a boy.
Mr. Oxner stopped then, afterwards he
,ame up in a galop and pointed his gun at
Will and shot, and Will shot Oxner. Will
said nothing after he shot Oxner. I
topped the wagon when Will shot Orier.
Ee fell from his mule. I went up to him.
aun was loaded with No. 5 shot. Iloaded
t a few days ago. Will was sitting on
Left hand side of wagon over wheel. Shot
rom Mr. Oxner's gun struck wagon body
md left hind wheel. Don't know how far
Dxner was when he shot. Both shots
were close together. Had one gun and
,un barrel Will had a pistol.. Oxuer
was sitting on his mule with gun in right
hand. Oxner was on right side of wagon
when he shot at Will. Will's gun was
rovered up under a quilt when Oxner shot
t him. Had to uncover his gun before
be could shoot. Will and myself shot at
a tree five times. Did not see Will re
load his pistol. After Will shot O.er he
ran down the road and I called him and
bold him to go to Newberry and give him
self up. Will Murphy is a yellow boy
about twenty years old, has no beard,
straight legs, about five feet ten inches
high and weighs about one hundred and
afty pounds, has rather l:rge eyes. Heard
Will and others say that Mr. Oxner and
Will had a difficulty before. Said no
harm of Oxner the day of the shooting.
He hoped Mr. Oxner would not bother
him. Said if Oxner run up on him he
would shoot. Will did not shoot first.
Both shots were about together. Told
Dr. Ruff this morniing that I thought Will
was gone to hunt him. Will was sitting
not very far from corner of wagon where
Orner's shot hit. Turned Mr. Oxner
:ver on his back after he was shot and
Irossed his hands. Did not touch his
gun. Wagon did not stop when Oxner
shot. I thought Will was shot. Never
bold anybody he was. Oxner was not
:lead when I turned him over. Said
sothing. Saw him move his hand. Told
Mrs. Oxner not to go where he was shot.
Don't know who brought him to house.
Wagon was about stopped when Will
Amor Buff says he heard the shots fired
and they were close together. Never
beard Will threaten Mr. Oxner.
J. M.'Henderson testified that he heard
M4r. Pressley tell Will Murphy that he was
just now fixed to get into trouble as he
tad just bought a pistol. Will Murphy
said Mr. Oxner had run him from his
wife's house and he had nothing to defend
Eimself with, and he had bought a pistol
.for that purpose.
W. E. Presslev testified that he had
sold Will Murphiy a' pistol on Friday.
Said he wanted something to kill rabbits
with. Sold him a 38 calibre pistol and
Dr. J. M. H. Buff certified that he had
axamined the body of J. F. Ozner and
found that. he had died from the effects of
a gun-shot wound penetrating the -left
side of the chest.
The jury of inquest found in their ver
liet that Mr. Oxner was killed by
William Murphy and that Judge Glenn,
Ir., vo s accessory. Glenn was at once
arrested and brought to jail. If Murphy
had been captured Saturday night it is
ikely he would have been summarily
:lealt with, but he isnow in jail and it is
much better that he was not caught.
Trial Justice C. P. Dicker t managed to
lapture Murphy on Sunday' night and
:aried him around through Union and
odged him safe in jail Monday morning.
Mr. J. F. Ox.ner was a highly respect
able farmer of the Maybinton portion of
ouir couxgty, was about 41 years of age
and leaves a wife and four little girls sur
The whole affair is deeply to be re
gretted. The negroes charged with the
homicide are now in jail and will have a
fair trial, and a Newberry jury may [be
counted on to do its duty.

IE DEATH OF ROBERT D. 3IAF
ie Faculty and Students of Erskine
College Pay a Tribute to His
For the Herald and News.
At 1 o'clock p. in. on Saturday, Oct.
1887, Mr. R. D. Maffett, a student in
rskine Colleg', from Silver Street,
ewberry County, S. C., died of con
stive malari:: fever. He had returned
college from his summer vacation
:ly one week previous to his death.
Oa1 Monday morning, Oct. 10, the
tcuhy and student; held a memorial
rvice, before the corpse was removed
his home for burial, to take the usual
licial notice of the death.
The following resolutions were offered
WHEREAS, One of our number, Mr.
D. 31affett, has been taken from us
death; and whereas we wish to give
rmal expression of our feelings in
ference to this sorrowful occurrence,
erefore be it resolved by us, the facul
and students of Erskine College:
1. That we recognize this affliction as
)t coming out of the dust, but from
im who has said, "What I do thou
oweth not now, but thou shalt know
2. That we hereby make known to
e family and friends of the deceased
r heartfelt sympathy with them in
is their time of trial and sorrow.
3. That we express our regret that the
easant association which we have had
ith our friend, some of us as teachers
id some of us as fellow-students, is
ns broken up so suddenly and so
4. That we request the papers of New
rry County to publish these resolu
)ns in their columns, in order that
ey may be seen by the friends of Mr.
affett in his own county.
Professor Hood seconded the resolu
>ns (Uis remarks are printed at the
quest of the mother of the deceased.)
Professor Hood said:
MR. PRESIDENT: When we meet to
,y the last tribute of respect to a de
.rted friend, is probably the time that
e saying is truest that, "The heart
ls most when the, lips move not."
it there is, on such an occasion, a so
anity in silence that overcomes the
art, and it must seek relief in tears or
)rds. It is w%ith sorrow we bid final
ie.us to the living; but then there is
me comfort in the thought that them
may meet again. How shall we
ke a innal leave of the dead! From
e eternal hojne whither our young
end has gone, no one ever returns.
ie past of such an one'is all that time
11 ever give us. His memory, indeed,
may cherish, his worth record, and
virtues imitate. These the resolu
ns propose to do; and, in giving them
second, I wish to express my own
lings of personal loss in the death of
is young man. Intimately acquainted
I have been with his father during
e last quarter of a century, in all the
Irtial and civic phases of life expe
hced by our country and Stafe within
at period, I felt a peculiarly strong at
ehment for the son from the first time
appeared in our Campus. This at
ehment had continued to grow stronger
as years and intercourse extended.1

are certainly fulfilling my expectations
at, with maturing years, he would de
lop the highest type of manhood,
able, generous, and noble. It is,
wever, one of the saddest mysteries
life that no friendship however true,
attachment however strong, no rem
ies however potent,-nor hope, nor
ars, nor nursing,-not even the ten
r and exhaustless ministrations of the
e of father or motlier or any other
n stay the execution, when disease
mes commissioned of death. We must

y submit to the will of Him whose

raceful and handsome of'person; cour
ous in his intercourse with others, he
deared himself at once to all around
mn; and no one more welcome thani he
er entered our recitation rooms. Al
ays polite and gentlemanly, he was
me to be loved by teachers and students
ike. Docile and tractable, no one ac
pted friendly counsel more kindly;
id in none shown more conspicuously,
all the relations in which we knew
m, the warmv impulses of a true and
merous heart. As in his life, we have
slessons, its unfading and sacred
emories, so in his death as well we
ive its lessons. TI'he arrow is set again.
iwards whom of us is its barbed point
rected? While we therefore, enshrine
s name in our hearts, and deeply
ourn with the bereaved family, let us
irselves expect the summons, and be
so ready. As we pass these resolu
ns in the nmidst of this' surrounding
rrow, let us resolve that, by the grace
God, we will also be ready to enter
when the bridegroom cometin.
After these services, the corpse was
>nveyed to the railroad station, accom
nied by his family, and a long pro
~ssion of teachers, students and citi.
ms, to be taken to his home for burial.

A UNIQUE WELCOME.
['he Pleasant CompHment to President
From a Chicago Newspaper.
It was a unique and at the same time
t pleasant welcome that the. Chicago
Daily News gave to President Cleveland
apon his arrival in that city. A wel
,ome to the President was written in
ilmost every known language and
printed in a conspicuous position on one
2f the most important pages of the pa
per. A vote of confidence in the Presi
lent's Administration came from every
tate in the Union. Interviews with
prominent citizens fron every State
were published to show the high appre
:iation of his honesty and integrity that
prevailed all over the country. From
South Carolina, Governor Richardson,
Congressmen J. J. Hemphill, G. W.
Dargan, J. S. Cothran and Dr. Andrew
Simonds gave their opinions.
Governor Richardson said : "I have
to say that President Cleveland's ad
ministration has been, in my opinion, in
the highest degree wise, conservative
and patriotic, and has given universal
ati4action to our people."
Congressman Hemphill said: "Mr.
(levelnnd's administration has always
had my confidence in his ability; in
tegrity and patriotism, and this, I am
satisfied, is the feeling of the great ma
jority of the people of thi: State. The
best thing for the Democratic party and
the country, in my opinion, is to renom
inate and elect him for another term."
Congre.ssman Dargan said: "I heart
ily endorse President Cleveland's ad
Congressman Cothran, said : "The
administration of Mr. Cleveland has
been in all respects most acceptable to
the people of this State, and I have not
the slightest hesitation in . ssuring you
that as matters now stand, his renoni
nation would be practically the unani
mnous desi e of the Democracy of South
Darolina. We have no personal prefer
mce for the second place on the ticket,
)ut for the sake of availability think one
rom the great West or Northwest should
Dr. Andrew Simonds said : "Civil
;ervice and such issues are secondary to
Rie great financial problems of unlim-,
ted silver coinage and the locking up of
imndreds of millions of dollars in the
:reasury vaults, which, if allowed to con
:inue, may bring widespread ruin. On
>oth of these questions Mr. Cleveland
tnd his able secretary of the treasury,
1Ir. Fairchild, are absolutely sound,
Lnd their policy commands the approval
